|The Home Online, 1998-2001 (HoL) data derive from a household panel survey conducted over three annual waves. The main focus of the research was to gather household and individual information and examine information and communications technology (ICT) access and behaviour.
Methodology from the HoL dataset was also used for a later British Household Panel Survey (BHPS) (held at the UK Data Archive (UKDA) under GN 33196) derived dataset, British Household Panel Survey Calibrated Time Use Data, 1994-2004, (held under SN 5363).
Most of the non-ICT questions were derived from the BHPS, and covered topics such as housing, social life, leisure time activities, computer use, employment, telephone use, internet use and demographic characteristics. Respondents also completed a time-budget diary covering one week.
